Alberta Positive Voices Conference March 6 - 8 2015
The Alberta Positive Voices Conference, March 6 - 8, 2015 held this year in Morley AB at Nakoda on the Lake is a bi-annual event that brings together people living with HIV/AIDS from across the province to learn about better health management and new advances in the pandemic while providing opportunities to form networks of friendship and support. Current estimates show that over 71,000 Canadians have HIV/AIDS, including more than 4,000 Albertans. This years conference, Looking Forward; Learn, Love & Laugh, will bring together 100 people living with HIV/AIDS and their spouses/partners for what has been described as a life changing experience.
This conference is unique because it is planned and delivered by people living with HIV/AIDS for and to people living with HIV/AIDS. Positive individuals participate at all levels; as planners, committee members, speakers and attendees. The APVC works to break isolation, foster self-esteem, growth and understanding of living with HIV/AIDS while building the capacity of future leaders living with HIV/AIDS to better inform policy and services, break the isolation created by HIV stigma and discrimination and build personal advocacy skills in Alberta.
The APVC is currently accepting scholarship and abstract submissions and can be submitted using the following links:
